Houston Nigerian Parade 2019

The Nigerian Cultural Parade and Festival 2019

AIX takes Communications Management ventures personal. For example, The Nigerian Cultural Parade and Festival – one of Houston’s  most diverse family gathering. October is officially Nigeria’s Independence month. This country, the most populous in Africa, gained independence from Great Britain in October 1, 1960. Celebrating Nigeria’s  Independence in a city – one of most diverse in the United States, stands to promote and advance the cultural, civic and social welfare of this community. Studies show that Nigerians are the single largest contemporary African immigrant group in the United States. In addition, the city of Houston is home to the highest population of Nigerians outside of the country.

An AIX  facilitator of the Nigerian Cultural Parade, walked out from the Houston City Hall  with some good news. Thus, on Friday, September 27, 2019, the eve of the most awaited Nigerian Cultural Parade, the City of Houston was honored Nigeria’s Independence Day by illuminating both the City Hall and major Highway bridges “green-white-green”. This was the first time such an honor was accorded to Nigeria by Houston–the fourth largest city in the United States.
